Diamondbacks | Update on J.J. Putz

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks RP J.J. Putz (elbow) is dealing with an ulnar collateral ligament sprain in his elbow, and he won't need to undergo surgery. Putz will rest for now, according to manager Kirk Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: This is comforting news for the D-backs' bullpen and Putz's fantasy owners. Still, he'll probably miss extended time, but you'll have to use him in your DL spot until he's ready. Heath Bell has first crack at the closing duties, and he was successful in his first chance last night. David Hernandez is worth owning in deep mixed leagues in case Bell falters.
